Gents,
How many of you use this and what are your opinions of it?

I had it for several years. It looks as good as the work you put into it. I went with the thinnest for my base terrain (more bang for the buck).

I used cheap Latex house paint covered with Woodland Scenic turf while wet for the base, it will last years.

It helps to have a layer of cloth or felt on the table to give some grab to the hexes. Also works well if you want to make more permanent boards.

I replaced it with Geohex several years later.

What is Geohex?

I believe he only sells through Facebook. It's not hard to find a set or two for sale at most wargame convention auctions or flea markets.

Geohex is impressive, no doubt. It is a lot of work to put it all together for a large table, with different elevations, but it is a pleasure to play on. Unfortunately, it is of foam construction, and delicate. Be careful leaning over the table and putting your hand down on top of it, to support yourself, as you reach.

I've seen most uses of it, without the corner bits used to hold the tiles together. They seem like too much, for too little: they don't hold very well, and if you are not careful in lifting the tiles, they can tear them apart.

Still, for micro-armor games, it is amazing terrain. I thoroughly enjoyed using it. Cheers!

Thanks Gents!

I've used GeoHex for years and, as Sgt Slag says, it does take a long time to set up and take down. It can also be quite fragile but, having thought repeatedly about replacing it with something simpler, I've stuck with it because nothing else is quite so flexible.

I am fortunate to have enough for for multiple layers on my table and so, rather than using the provided white plastic joins, I pin the hills to the table.

An occassional thin corner gets knocked off but the worst thing is if the cat gets up on the table and has a strop but even this can be fixed with a bit of glue and flock.

I think GeoHex is also sold on ebay, that's where I got more for my stash. I believe he does small runs and not big lots so the inventory is not huge.
